In the mid-'90s, Olympia, Washington's Sleater-Kinney emerged out of the Riot Grrl movement to become rather more mainstream figures in the alt-rock world (even counting Robert Redford as a fan). The trio began their existence as a furiously paced three-chord punk band, showcased to perfection on 1997's landmark Dig Me Out, but they would progress into something far more complex. Their later output tended toward more intricate, wandering, almost Baroque compositions, earning praise from a new set of critics. The trio went on an indefinite hiatus following the release of The Woods in 2005. A limited-edition career-encompassing box set released in 2014 included a freshly recorded 7" single, and the band announced their reunion and a new full-length, which would appear in January 2015. ~ Jason Thurston
